    Alligator or Ashima rotors for Hayes Stroker Trail brakes/w stock pads?
    I am building a light carbon 1x9 HT. What rotors would work well with Hayes Stroker Trail Brakes with the stock pads? I think they are sintered pads. I am thinking Ashima or Alligator rotors. I will use 160mm front and 140mm in the rear.

    I personally like the Alligator rotors. Been using them for 2 years on 2 different brake setups. Only one minor noise issue on my 29er. But otherwise, no problems.

    Ashima airotors are lighter, I've also heard from many people they chew through pads quickly, but they do provide very good stoppage power.

    A pair of Alligator rotors just arrived today. 160/140mm with red centers. I'm finishing the bike build tomorrow, so I'll see how they work soon. I put them an a new set of white Spinergy wheels, that also came today.

    I've been running Ashima's for over a year now... no brake pad problems and I run the organic's which should wear the fastest...
